Hi UKAPS,

I have some standard red rotala macrandra that's growing really nicely right now.

Currently, I'm not sure how to trim it. Can I trim it like rotala rotundifolia (cut and discard the tops, leave the rooted portions in the substrate to grow sideshoots back), or do I have to trim it like cabomba (discard the bottom, replant the top)?

Any tips to trimming this plant?

Thank you for your time.

You can do either :)

Replant the tops of you have enough “bushyness” or want to retain the “grown-in” look, otherwise trim leaving the base.
